Sculpture Milwaukee, which fills the streets of downtown Milwaukee each year with public art that can be safely enjoyed by all, announced the appointment of a new guest curator for the next edition of the non-profit, city-wide annual exhibition. 

Ugo Rondinone has been appointed as the Guest Curator of Sculpture Milwaukee’s 2022 exhibition. The exhibition will launch in June 2022 and run through October of 2023. Now in its sixth edition, Sculpture Milwaukee is a non-profit producing annual exhibitions of contemporary sculpture with a dedicated focus on public art practices. Several new works are introduced as part of each year's exhibition, while some legacy works remain on view.

The exhibition, entitled Nature Doesn’t Know About Us, will include “13 works by 13 artists who combine skeptical clarity and at times humor-tinged desire to locate the intersection of spiritual and physical presence in our daily life,” according to Rondinone.

The fifth edition of Sculpture Milwaukee is currently on view throughout the city and has been curated by Theaster Gates and Michelle Grabner. You can read CGN's past coverage of the exhibition here
